Olivia Munn is not here for rumours that she’s dating actor Chris Pratt. After reports circulated claiming the X-Men actor was secretly dating Pratt and that his ex, Anna Faris, was furious about it, Munn clapped back on Twitter and we friggin’ loved it—not least of all because of how Pratt’s ex, , replied to her text message. Can these two be in a buddy comedy movie together ASAP, please?

“Since we know each other, I wanted to reach out to you personally to tell you the story about me and Chris dating has 0% truth,” Munn wrote in a text message to Faris, according to a screen shot she shared in her Instagram stories. “I’m sure you already know it’s not true, or maybe didn’t care either way, but I just wanted to reach out personally to tell you it’s not true.”
Munn got an answer from Faris that I can only hope a pal would send me in a similar sitch: “Oh my god—this town is so f*cking crazy—you are so sweet to text—I love you—having said that if you were my new sister in law I would be thrilled!”
Munn then shared the text convo on her Twitter page along with a couple of intro slides that read as follows: “1. Not every woman is scorned and upset after a breakup. 2. Not every woman is ‘furious’ at another woman for dating her ex. 3. Even if I was dating @prattprattpratt, some tabloids got me and @annakfaris all wrong. 4. Women respect and love each other a lot more than some people like to think.”
That, ladies and gentlemen, is how it’s done. In one fell swoop and a handful of images, Munn and Faris schooled us all on how to deal with gossip AND how to put your friends first.
And while we’re used to hearing from Munn lately (like when she and when she killed on January 11), and we obviously adore Faris in every role she takes on (pop star Samantha James in , anyone?), but we were DELIGHTED to read her response to Munn in her own words.
Peops on Twitter were in agreement:
This. All of it. Yes, & . Just yes.

This is how you handle gossip. . She addressed and killed it all at the same time.

This is next level. Even more of a reason not to believe gossip/rumors. Wow, so amazing.
